WAVE Desktop Client won’t start

The Problem: WAVE Desktop will not run on my machine
The WAVE Desktop app requires a computer (real or virtual) with support for OpenGL 2.1 or higher.

Typically this is not an issue but in some cases a need arises to launch WAVE Desktop on computers with limited graphics options. A virtual machine (VMWare, VirtualBox) or a Server PC with limited graphics capabilities are typical examples where OpenGL 2.1 may not be supported.

The Solution: Emulate GPU (graphics processing unit) using the CPU (central processing unit).
To resolve this issue the WAVE team has introduced a way to emulate necessary graphics functions over CPU which allows running client on any hardware set if Server is installed on any Windows x64 OS version.

Warnings:

When using this method what you are really doing is transferring the computing load that would normally be done by a GPU (graphical processing unit) to the CPU. This will cause your CPU usage to go up significantly.
We do not recommend using this method unless it is absolutely required.
Remember to close the Client application as soon as you are finished to return your CPU load to normal.

 

Step-by-Step Instructions

Download the OpenGL 2.1 emulation library (via Google Drive)
